MANILA – One of the suspects in the fraternity hazing which caused the death of a De La Salle University student has left the country, making him the fifth suspect to flee.
During the continuation of the preliminary investigation on the fatal hazing incident, the Department of Justice was told that another suspect in the case has also left the country.
A total of twenty suspects were charged with violating the Anti-Hazing Law after the death of Guillo Cesar Servando.
Most of the suspects are members of the Tau Gamma Phi fraternity.
One of the suspect, Alyssa Valbuena, daughter of Manila Councilor Erick Valbuena, was reported to have left the country on July 10.
According to Servando’s lawyers, Valbuena left the country also on the same day that the lookout list of the Department of Justice was released.
The lookout list served as a warning to alert authorities if any of the suspect attempts to leave the country.
Servando’s lawyers submitted a copy of the Immigration records which indicated that five suspects have already left the country.
Among those who managed to leave were John Kevin Navoa, Esmerson Calupas, Hans Killian Tatlonghari and Eleazar Pablico III.
